Extending an awning during peak sunlight reduces heat and controls light and UV rays, even in winter or cloudy days – and targeting a specific period of time can improve energy efficiency.

Retractable awnings can move on a smooth and natural cycle. Timers extend and retract awnings on a pre-defined schedule. Sensors respond to environmental conditions like light levels. Timers operate retractable awnings on a personal schedule, opening or closing based on the schedule of your home or business.

Timers are mounted on a wall, similar to a programmable thermostat, and communicate with any RF-enabled devices. A single timer can control a single retractable awning, several awnings, or even other RF devices, such as security lights. (The highest end timer can handle up to 40 different devices.)

Using timers can emulate a normal routine through schedules. The schedule simply sets the time for the awning to extend and to retract.

RetractableAwnings.com has three different types of timer:

  • One schedule

  • Four schedules

  • 16 schedules

Schedules can be set to respond in tandem with sun sensors, to be random (to make it appear people are home), or to have different weekday and weekend schedules. Any schedule can be deactivated and then brought back online later, and a manual schedule can be used in its place. Schedules bring flexibility.

Timers can be used with any wireless motorized retractable awning.
